A SIP OF HERITAGE: MERLION TURNS 50

The beloved Merlion statue was unveiled at the mouth of Singapore River 50 years ago on 15 September 1972, and in 2002 it found its new home at Merlion Park, a promontory that overlooks the Marina Bay. Celebrate the Merlion’s 50th birthday with a variety of unique and local cocktails, inspired by its worldwide iconic status and Singapore’s rich cultural heritage.
